The following is from "The London Paper":
Serena, meanwhile, who slumped to as low as 140 in the world just two years ago, bristles at the suggestion that her older sister is the favourite. She said: "I'm not going to sit here and say she's the favourite when I'm still in the tournament.
"That's not me. I always believe I'm the favourite. Even if I'm not, I'm always going to believe that I am." Sisters on the March, The London Paper, 2 July 2008
Good for you, Serena, for having belief in yourself!
Serena and her sister, Venus, will be playing each other in the Wimbledon tennis finals. I guess the sister who has the stronger self-belief will come out the champion.
